Aussie explorer Kris Baha rightly won praise for his previous releases for the likes of Bahnsteig 23, Kinfolk and Cocktail D'Amore. This first outing on Pinkman, though, is likely to see his stock rise even further. It boasts a quintet of tracks that are far darker and more stylish in tone than anything he's released before. Many will hear the influence of Nitzer Ebb and "Sensoria"-era Cabaret Voltaire on superb opener "Nation of Dismay", while "Flashback" is an equally wicked foray into clandestine EBM territory. The producer's love of hard-to-distinguish, spoken vocal samples - something frequently found on the records that no doubt inspired the EP - once again comes to the fore on metallic chugger "Safety Pin" and the Depeche Mode-ish throb of "Push".
